Royal Ascot Next Step for 2015 Golden Slipper Winner?

Officials from England’s Royal Ascot Racecourse are targeting the Golden Slipper 2015 winner with a new race for juveniles held during our winter season.

The famous Royal Ascot Carnival is a coveted four day festival of racing held in June, and next year the event is hoping to attract the interest of Australian connections like never before.

While the Royal Ascot races have in previous years drawn plenty of Australian-trained superstars as well as youngsters set to stay on in the UK, most notably the undefeated Black Caviar who narrowly held on to win the 2012 Diamond Jubilee Stakes in the toughest test of her career, in 2015 it could be our two-year-olds facing off against their three-year-olds in a new sprint feature.

Ascot’s Chief Executive Charles Barnett announced the new race name this week, the Commonwealth Cup (1200m) to run on the fourth day of the carnival replacing the Buckingham Palace Stakes on the Friday race card.

The world’s richest race for two-year-olds, the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) runs at Rosehill Gardens on March 21.

In the UK horses are a year older than ours, with the northern hemisphere horses’ birthday celebrated at the start of August, so to lure our juveniles to face off against a likely more experienced field of locals will be a tough assignment.

Barnett said they hoped to bring over our youngsters that run competitively in both the Golden Slipper as well as Melbourne’s $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) held at Caulfield on February 28 next year.

“Longer term, we are looking to attract interest from connections of horses that have run in championship two-year-old races in Australia like the Blue Diamond and the Golden Slipper, as they are counted as three-year-olds in the northern hemisphere at Royal Ascot,” Barnett said according to the Herald Sun.

“We are very excited about the Commonwealth Cup, which has already been talked of in positive terms by the connections of this year’s leading two-year-old filly, Tiggy Wiggy, and American-trained Hootenanny, who won the Windsor Castle Stakes at this year’s meeting and was subsequently successful at the recent Breeders’ Cup.”

Early hopefuls emerging for the 2015 Golden Slipper meanwhile include the Clarry Conners-trained filly Aegean Sea, the speedy Peters Snowden-trained Paceman and Mark Riley’s progressive Starspangledbanner colt Of The Brave.

Stay tuned to for all the latest on the emerging Golden Slipper contenders and any overseas plans for the youngsters.
